Raspberry PI fun

Just got this box in the mail, now just waiting for a my new touch-screens. Looks like I got the weekend covered.

There was a small LCD screen that came with the kit. I will be putting that in my Amiga 500 retro-mod. Will try to wire it up so that every time i start a game or program – the title of the executable will scroll over the display.

This will involve a fpc compiled signal bridge, but I may be able to do the whole thing in node.js. On the Amiga side of things a task dump running on interrupt should be enough to catch the filename, then broadcast it via UDP on localhost. That way the Linux side of things can pick up the data -and push the text to the display.

    I ordered some supplies on Friday. Can’t wait. Got a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, case, power supply, and 10.1″ display w/ case and stand.
